'Outside Forces' Blamed for Syria Bombs

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday blamed "outside forces" for the massive suicide bombings in Syria that killed more than 50 people in Damascus on Thursday. "Some countries are inciting outside forces to interfere into the Syrian situation, which is unacceptable," Lavrov said in Beijing, where he's holding talks with his Chinese counterpart. He did not specify the countries, but the Syrian government has blamed "terrorists" for the attack, while the opposition said the government itself is responsible.
